The last couple of nights I've had bad heartburn and it even makes my jaw and teeth hurt. Should I be cocerned about this?

Answer

Hi joh asbell,

Your heartburn symptoms are concerning so you should speak with your physician as soon as possible. Here is a link to information on Heartburn as well as information on Heart Attack Symptoms. I don't want to alarm you, but cardiac symptoms can sometimes be a lot more "quiet" than the dramatic chest-clutching-and-collapse that we see on television, but they still can do the same amount of damage to the heart muscle.
